it spends, and tracks, money. we are live from sacramento with more. nannette? >> you might remember last summer, parks department had surpluses in two funds, now, an audit finds all kinds of mistakes in 14 special funds managed by california public utilities commission. if you have a cell phone or receive utility bills for electricity, gas, or cable, you pay a list of fees and surcharges that go to state public utilities commission. and a new audit rips how the commission is poorly tracking and spending moneys going into 14 special funds that pay for things like phone service fr disabled. >> we want to assure amounts we're paying and rates are for their intended purposes. that they can be accounted for properly. both revenues and expen tours. >> lack the knowledge led to reporting of $400 million. and poor forecasting led to less money collected than anticipated in a fund for subsidized service for rural areas. in one instance, a worker committed an $81 million typo. >> just lousy book keeping is what is going on. >> state senator jerry hill has been pressuring state p.u.c. for years to
this afternoon in san francisco. all of the heavy hitters from sacramento were there with officials. >> governor brown came to tout an area of collaborations between legislature and uc system. >> is there is broad agreement here today that the state can no longer be relied on for funding as it has been in the past. doesn't that mean privatization? no. they say, but no one knows yet what the new model will look like. >> month one missed an opportunity and the budget influgs to prevent under graduate tuition increase kreess. no one missed an opportunity model has to be figured out going forward. brown boiled it down to too much spending, and a financial model that has to be overhauled in order for uc not just to survive, but thrive. there are no answers or solutions today, just a lot of talk about how this is a new era where legislature and regents will be working together unlike ever before. >> i think all of us recognize financial model is broken. it's just broken. we're going have to be creative. work around it. preserving research, quality, access for the students. >> this is a collective body
an id. >> what we have seen if the local level in california is that cities like sacramento and los angeles have done local recordkeeping ordnances on ammunition and when they looked at the records, convicted criminals were walking into shops buying ammunition no questions asked. that's a serious public safety issue that needs to be addressed in california. >> there's no id check for bullets. people who sell bullets don't have to be licensed. so we need reasonable safeguards. >> reporter: assemblywoman nancy skinner is introducing a companion bill. it would require the state to maintain records in order to track people who buy ammunition. she believes that will keep ammunition out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. her bill would also alert law enforcement if someone buys a large amount and be able to trace it if a crime does take place. >> we can have a registry and that way, it's those prohibited persons who are prohibited now from buying a weapon somehow have a weapon they bought illegally and then they are buying bullets, law enf

did not make it. now i have become a bureaucratic the city of sacramento, which seems like a pretty glorious way to go. but i have met some pretty fantastic people through that. i'm eager to work with you on all of the issues that you have. there's a great staff that operates the office in san francisco. they resolve most of the problems that we could possibly face. there have been a couple that people live come -- have asked me to come down and meet with them on. i am more than happy to do that when there is something that we cannot resolve at the local level. san francisco is a place that we are very proud of. we got kicked out of our office, just by the landlord and the release. there is a lot of political pressure on us just to keep the political office closed. as most of my staff will tell you, there was really one person who thought it was the perfect idea to stay in san francisco and pay the market rent, and that was me. maybe state bureaucrats did not like that some much, but at least one of them did, and that was me. we are delighted to be in san francisco. it is important
in sacramento and reached ow to bars throughout the state of california to achieve an unprecedented level of success for a predatory lending effort and we would not have been able do that without the corporation of elected throughout the state and community leaders as well and we are hopeful that this will be a template for what wedo in this case and that we get a similar level of success to make sure had a money goes back to the people who are victim iressed and that they get the restitution that they deserve and i would like to introduce michael papist from the enter face-to-face 98 counsel because he was a big part in making sure we got our effort out to the 98 community and to make sure that borrowers who were vimsed got the restitution they deserved and we are happy he is cooperating in our effort for the next 90 days. >> p oop pennsylvania a s.-the san francisco enter fate counsel is absolutely indebted if you will forgive the pun to his city treasure her heira in this suspicious when this program started. we believe that the victims of predatory lending are sill the in in our pe
. and paychecks will still be mailed as they are today from sacramento. so it takes two additional days for the paychecks to be mailed. however, the system -- the new system will take longer for providers to be paid, because when the system changes first of all, we have downtime, when the system changes over. so there is going to be three working days where no one will be able to enter anything into the system or change anything in the system at all. and then it will take longer for paychecks to be mailed to chico than it is to just mail within san francisco. also the computer, when it can't read the images that are on the new time sheets, it will send an electronic image back here to san francisco to our office, and we will have to troubleshoot that and work it out. and as only three counties have gone live with this new system before us, they had a lot of growing pains with the system and we anticipate there will be some other things that will happen. we're concerned about the impact about the impacts this will have on the providers and consumers. we are working very closely with
benefits that people in sacramento are often accustomed to. thank you. >> thank you, sir. next i have miss deborah benedict. : >> hi. deborah benedict, again with senior and disability action and i will also mention that i am a member of californians for disability rights, which is a statewide organization that does keep track of the lawsuits and actions that are going on statewide. so it might behoove the mayor's office on disability to join the californians for disability rights, because there are plenty of emails that i get blasted about that kind of information. one of the things that i wanted to share about my experience of being in managed care at this point was my managed care provider, which is lion martin health care, claimed that they were trying to improve patient experience and they cut out the ability to make appointments on a voicemail or that was connected to the company. so now you get put into a phone queue. and i don't know how many people are familiar with being endlessly in loops of phone queues, but it's extremely frustrating when you are sick or need to make an app
would like to speak to for just a minute -- this originates in sacramento, but the fact that the medical budget cuts meant that people no longer get dental care, incontinence supplies is not paid for. this is creating a horrible situation for a lot of people that cannot afford dental care. there is very few avenue to get anything done besides getting a tooth pulled on an emergency basis. so those are quality of life issues. the last thing i would like to speak to is just asking us to address the question of who gets left out of the information loop? i was struck by some of the recent community meetings that were sponsored around the changes that were talked about megan elliot. at both senior sites we had probably 300 people who came to hear about that. and then i'm thinking well who got left out of that and who maybe didn't hear about that? because there is an existing network of senior centers and senior housing where a lot of information gets communicates, but i think sometimes we tend to keep connecting to the same people who already have a connection. and that i thi

allow medical service in the sacramento neighborhood commercial district. it would permit a change of use from business or professional service to medical services on the first floor. also this week supervisor avalos introduced a rather large ordinance titled conversion, demolition and conformity of residential uses. this would revise the criteria for residential conversion and standardize definitions for these uses across various use districts, permit enlargement of dwelling units which are non-conforming as to density in the districts where these dwelling units are principally increase into the non-conforming elements of height bulk are required rear yards or setbacks. this would permit alterationses to non-conforming uses or non-conforming structures to comply with disability access requirements, or in order to provide the secure bicycle parking. lastly it would establish a strong presumption in favor of preserving dwelling units in enforcement of requirements for these non-conforming uses, structures or lots. so those are the two new ordinances. we will schedule both of them fo
